Gameday! Habs vs Penguins


Tuesday October 18, 2011

Montreal Canadiens vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

So.  Who’s ready for a win?  I know I sure as hell am!

Despite the horrible record, the Habs have been steadily improving.  The defence looks as though it has found some sort of chemistry, the offense is firing a million shots per game, and despite what everyone is saying, Price has been fine.  A couple of iffy goals in the Colorado game, but otherwise, every goal has come from a “Grade A” scoring chance with a sniper alone in front of the net.  Everyone “chill out”.  Price will be fine.

Who’s out?

Montreal

  • Andrei Markov (still recovering from knee surgery)
  • Ryan White
  • Jaroslav Spacek
  • Chris Campoli
  • Mike Cammalleri (game time decision)

Keys to the Game

The heat is on for some high paid Habs.  With the young guns, Desharnais, Pacioretty and Kostitsyn lighting it up, the expensive vets, Gomez, Gionta, Cole and Plekanec had better start to produce, or they could find themselves losing some serious ice time!

Can you imagine the playing card Gauthier would have, if these young guys played well enough to make these “veteran stars” expendable?  Hmmm……

My Prediction

Habs 5 – Penguins 3
